Market Decentralization and Covenantal Organization

Written by Gary North on July 30, 2016

Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ (I Cor. 11:1).   The individual Christian has a model: Paul. He had a model: Jesus Christ. But this does not solve the institutional problem: What is the biblical model within each of these categories: Church, State, and family? For almost two millennia, […]

The Paralysis of Parachurch Ministries

Written by Gary North on July 30, 2016

But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge […]

Positive Feedback and Kingdom Victory

When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats, And He will set […]

The Calling

Written by Gary North on May 28, 2016

“The Protestant ethic.” We hear that phrase all the time. Usually, people speak of the Protestant ethic as something that belonged to the American (or British, or Dutch) people generations ago, but which is dead today.
